Autonomous robot design and programming have become a prominent teaching method in the field of education, offering students opportunities to engage with science, engineering, and computer programming. This rapidly growing field holds great potential for fostering students' technical skills and innovation abilities. Particularly in modern society, creativity and innovation have become increasingly vital skills, whether in solving real-world problems or shaping future careers. Autonomous robot design and programming courses provide students with practical learning experiences, requiring them to not only grasp the fundamental principles of robot programming but also tackle real-world problems and challenges. This learning approach emphasizes students' active participation and creative thinking. Therefore, a natural question arises: Can autonomous robot design and programming inspire students' creativity? This study aims to explore the potential impact of autonomous robot design and programming on students' creativity. By reviewing the existing literature, explaining research methods, and detailing data collection and analysis, we aim to provide a deeper understanding for educators and policymakers to better support and encourage the development of education in this field.
